Mustang

I'm going to be getting out of mustangs for a while considering I have a buyer, and I also want something that handles better and is a pretty rare car to see driving down the road. I've got a loan and plan on buying a supercharged Lotus Elise by Christmas time. It will put out around 240 he which will be an extremely fun car to do autocross in or take it to a track. Let me know what you guys think. Here is what the Lotus Elise looks like Click image for larger version

Wicked man! Good luck! But I'm sure you will miss building your own car, those things are built fully upon purchase! Again good luck!

It is a British made car. It's a built corner carver. I would trade a Mustang for a Lotus any day

Hondas, Toyota, and Nissans are made in the USA now. Cheaper to make them here than ship them.

Yeah that sucks I guess that's because they don't pass safety regulations.

I was iffy about that too, but they only weigh 1900 pounds so 240 horses is plenty for a car that's basically just a glorified go-cart. LOL!!!

Haha lotus us all about weight reduction. I could care less about smart air bags as well as most Americans that buy a Lotus.

+1 to this. I'm curious to see if you actually get one.

If you do then make a build thread for it, I never hear of anybody picking one of these up and modifying them

Sure will I am looking around for one now they are pretty hard to find and my area, so I may have to ship it or fly out with my dad to get it. I'm surprised my dad said yes to it, but he has always had a love for sports cars.

I was thinking about that but the Lotus is a pure bred track car with amazing handling and has that exotic look that nobody in my area has. I live in South Mississippi people go crazy over anything like that.

I also found a lotus near me that I am debating on getting or waiting on something else similar to pop up closer. It is a elise with a supercharger that puts out 360 whp. Which would be a crazy driving experience considering the car only weighs 2000 lbs.

Me too. My favorite is either midnight blue or carbon black on an elise. I would hate to get the yellow lotus just because of the power it puts out but be dissatisfied with the cars appearance.

Yeah these cars take very well to mods. You can spend $7,000 on the engine and be playing with Ferraris and other super cars.
